So I can't believe Firefox has been around this long and still hasn't made a tab preview like the one on the new google chrome update. I can't even find an add-on anywhere. So please devs make this a feature. I know that there is an option to see the preview of each tab in the windows taskbar but that is just messy when there are a lot of open tabs because you can't just click on the open window and jump right into you left off you have to look through each and every open tab to find the right one. IMO this seems like a great add-on considering other browsers already have their own version of this. Below is the Preview tab that firefox already has and it just sucks imo.

In the last year I have had more and more problems with Firefox. It runs when I don't have the browser activated, it slows things down and now it wont even start at all.

The constant updates always interrupt me when I am working on my computer as well.

So bottom line; what do I need to do in order to use the Firefox browser before I dump the program altogether.

YouTube content filtering

When I enter YouTube and I try to see comments written to me, it says "'content filtering' has hidden the discussions on this channel". When I try to click on the button to cancel the filtering, it tells me that it cannot be canceled because the filtering is from the network administrator. "Content filtering Enabled by the network administrator to help filter videos that may contain adult content only." It blocks me from any discussion even if it doesn't contain adult content. I switch browsers, open Chrome, and there is no content filtering by the network administrator, but it does show me the discussion that Firefox blocked. Which means the ISP doesn't block me and neither does any other manager except the Firefox browser. I don't have another network administrator, I surf on a private network at home. You need to report the problem to Firefox and they will take care of it.

Thanks.

Running win 10 I have a document on my desktop that I would like to open with firefox. I have that figured out using a batch file.

I am opening firefox with the -new-instance -private along with the -url with path to the document.

I want to open firefox in this specific instance using the "new window without toolbar" addon as it is ideal for this particular application.

My question is how do I default to this option for this particular application, while keeping firefox with my bookmark toolbar and other options as my default browser in general usage.

Hello,

When I open my application in Firefox, form elements dissapear, I see onlu blank page, but I have found that at the end of the
which displays form elements, I found the attribute
at DOM.

I wonder why this is happening and is it the fault of Mozilla or a bug on the frontend side of my application. But at the other browsers this problem do not appear. I tried to open the form in safe mode, incognito, no add-ons, tried to create a new Firefox account, tried without logging in, but none of these options gave the expected result - the tab disappears after I refresh the page. I am asking for help.

when taking part in a VA video conference, I could get pictures but no sound. (other browsers - edge & chrome- gave me only sound and pictures). I get sound from videos, You Tube, Netflix, etc., but nothing when on the VA video conferencing site. I am using Windows 10 on an HP desktop computer. I even turned off my virus protection to make sure it was not interfering (suggested by VA video conferencing help contact) but that did not help either. Since VA is going to a lot of video conferencing this is creating a real problem. (Checking the settings for the webcam (Logi pro scan) all showed that it was functioning properly. Sound comes in on all other sites using Fire Fox.

Firefox behavior with virtual desktops in Windows 10

Hello dear Firefox experts,

I have been using Firefox for years and of course I would like to continue doing so. :-)

I work with Windows 10 and have learned to appreciate the virtual desktops, which can be set up via the key combination "Windows + Tab". About the desktops can then be distinguished, for example, in "Office" and "Private".

In total, I have actively set up 4 different desktops.

FF I have set up as the "default app" in the Windows settings.

Now it is the case that I have a Firefox window open in the "private desktop", for example.

But when I work in the "office desktop" and click on a URL, the office desktop automatically switches to the private desktop and opens the URL in the FF already opened there in a new tab! :-(

So I have to remember before to open a new Firefox window in the office desktop to display the desired page also on this desktop.

Unfortunately, this doesn't always work.

If I work in the meantime in another of the 4 active desktops and use Firefox there and return to the office desktop and want to open a URL there again, the desktop jumps back to where I last used the already opened FF. This is quite annoying in the long run.

That's why I ran a test today with Google Chrome and MS Edge and defined each of them as the default app for testing.

Stupidly, these two browsers work exactly as I want them to. If I have already opened one of these browsers in another desktop, the URL will still open in the current desktop and any additional URL as another tab will correctly open in the current desktop.

If I now switch to the private desktop and open a URL there, it will correctly open in a new tab in this desktop.

I hope I was able to illustrate my "problem" so far?

Now my question? How can I change the behavior in FF? This seems to be a standard of FF in contrast to both other browser programs. Disabling in the FF settings "Open links in tabs instead of new windows" seems to be only a rudimentary solution;

but then a new window is opened every time, which is also not useful.


Can something be adjusted in the "deeper" settings?

Many thanks in advance for your tips.

Best regards, Georg
